About This Game

Professor Spelunx and Mr. Seudo are studying Planet X, a place full of mystery and adventure. There's a surprise around every turn, a huge world to explore and dozens of mini-games to enjoy. Spelunx and the Caves of Mr. Seudo is an educational title for elementary and middle school kids, but the learning is so cleverly hidden in the enchanting gameplay that even adults will find something to enjoy in this early gem from the creators of Myst.

Spelunx is an educational game cleverly disguised as an exploration in a cave. The cave contains many toys, games, and activities that are fun to play with but also happen to teach principles of math, biology, physics, etc.

Again, like with the other bonus games in the bundle, we are left with a non-standard point-and-click adventure that is especially perfect for children. This one is actually better for slightly older kids, as it has far more purely educational content to it than the other two while still having the sense of fun that comes with being able to click everything to see what it does. For instance, you can learn the basics about the planets and see what they look like (in the pixelated way you'd expect of a game this old), drop rocks into a hole to learn how quickly it falls to various depths and how long it takes the sound to return to you, and even see how soon thunder follows a lightning strike at a certain distance away, among other things. This is a game you could actually feel fairly okay with letting the kids spend a good amount of time on. At the same time, the sense of adventure that is present when hunting down new things and seeing what it all does is kept intact as well. Overall, this game once again makes the bundle worth it, serving as an excellent little bonus, and I'll definitely keep it on hand for the next time I have kids around to entertain.

It's a nice bonus with the Cyan Worlds pack and it certainly has a brilliant moment or two. But it is much simpler and less weird than Cosmic Osmo or The Manhole. Took me about half an hour to see what I think is all of it. Someone actually interested in playing with its simple toys (ie. a little kid) probably could get hours out of it. Also worth noting is that unlike Osmo and Manhole, this one will actually fill up your whole screen.

I really don't know what to make of this game. It's so obscurely, anciently interesting. Probably won't last you long, but there's a lot to explore and interact with in the short time you'll be playing. There's something about it that I can't put my finger on, which is probably just a Cyan Worlds thing, but it has a quirkiness to it that just enthralls me.

Spelunx is a short exploration type game that has quite a few innovative user changable features for an early 1990s game. Other than those few features, there wasn't a whole lot to it. It works nicely as an "extra" in the bundle.

This is a pretty cool game to show off the smokin' fast 2x CD-ROM you just bought. Also, I am recommending this in 1993.

Tired of your foster parents beating you with soda cans? Escape from reality with Spellunx. This exploration game has no beggining, nor end. You play as a wanderer exploring the mysteries of Mr. Seudo (some crazy scientist).

If you play long enough, you will see the sheer genius of Mr. Seudo. He uses many hard and medical problem words. JUST KIDDING, there is absolutely no dialogue in this game. I think my favorite part of Spellunx is the telescope room, inside of cave, pointing at the ceiling. This magical mother ♥♥♥♥ing telescope can see through the caves ceiling and is pointing at the constellation of Cancer. THIS GAME WILL GIVE YOU CANCER.

Very education, for ages 5-10
